I was raised by possums among the briney reeds of Lake Ponchatrain.

Background Information

My motivation for writing is the same for breathing. keeping alive, keep learning, keep becoming a better person and of course to get dates.

Influences: Woody Allyn, Orwell, Hemmingway, Steinbeck, Tolstoy, Treasure Island, Fitzgerald, Ira Gershwin, science and Otis. (he's a buck deer that visits me every so often.)

Backround: art, music, design, bbqing, fondue and drinking from a garden hose on a hot day.


Birth Place

Canne, One Show, D@D, yada

Additional Information

My new book, "The Entrepreneur" a zany romp through the imaginative mind of a narrator who sails off into his own realm of ludicrous ambition. He begins a tattoo business with the help of Mink, a mysterious master of the needle, capable of tattooing internal organs so they can be reclaimed by the owner should they ever be snatched. Ever optimistic, the narrator undertakes another misadventure retooling a WWII Japanese submarine for luxury dinner cruises beneath the San Francisco bay. The cruises are a great success until an amorous whale spoils the fun and the Coast Guard must be beckoned to save passengers from angry, half-drunk harbor seals. Undaunted, the narrator continues his quest after falling deeply in love with June Bug, a fellow zither player. Forced to leave California, they flee to New Mexico and open a Pancake House for aliens looking for the best flap jacks in the galaxy. Rick Casteel extends the absurdity of the novella with his short story The Truth about Peking Duck in which the history of Peking Duck is delivered in the monologue of a Peking Duck thatís about to be eaten.
